Anggun was born in Djakarta, the capital of Indonesia, on 29th April 1974. Born into a showbiz family - her father, Darto Singo, was a renowned singer, songwriter and producer on the Indonesian music scene - it was hardly surprising that young Anggun soon decided to follow in her father's footsteps.Perjalanan panjang karir Anggun tidak lepas dari pro dan kontra di tanah air, namun dalam catatan saya Anggun merupakan sosok yg tangguh dalam menggapai cita-citanya...kembali keberhasilan dapat dicapai dengan usaha yg keras....jer basuki mawa bea.....
Darto Singo recognised his daughter's talent at an early age and encouraged her to train her voice. Anggun would soon go on to become something of a child prodigy, launching her career at the tender age of 7 when she recorded an album of children's songs. By her early teens Anggun had moved onto rock and in 1986 the young singer returned to the studio to record a heavily rock-influenced album entitled "Dunia Aku Punya". This extremely popular album, recorded with one of the top producers on the Indonesian music scene, would help catapult Anggun to fame. Needless to say, the young singer soon went on to become a veritable megastar in East Asia.
Following the success of "Dunia Aku Punya", Anggun would return to the studio to record a whole new string of hit albums ("Tua Tua Keladi" in 1990, "Anak Putih Abu Abu" in 1991, "Noc Turno" in 1992 and "Anggun C.Sasmi ... Lah!" in 1993). Meanwhile, the young rock diva was also busy outside the studio, performing a number of extensive tours throughout Asia.
It was while on tour in Borneo that Anggun met her future husband, a young French engineer. The pair hit it off immediately and shortly after the end of Anggun's tour, they met up again in Singapore. Anggun and Michel's relationship soon developed into something more serious, much to the disapproval of Anggun's family. But in spite of her parents' initial reluctance Anggun would go on to marry Michel. At the height of her fame in Asia, the young singer then decided to leave her homeland and try her luck in Europe. In 1994 the young couple moved to London, but the following year they changed their plans and moved into an apartment in Paris.
Anggun was determined to get her singing career up and running again in France, but the problem was that she was a complete unknown on the Paris music scene. Not for long however! Anggun soon met up with the French musician and producer Erick Benzi (who had made a name for himself working with a number of top international stars including Johnny Hallyday, Céline Dion and Jean-Jacques Goldman). Impressed by the young Indonesian singer's talent, Benzi immediately offered to co-write an album with Anggun and he eventually managed to persuade her to move away from her original rock influences and experiment with a more sensual, romantic sound.
Anggun's smooth new style would prove an immediate success in France. Her new album "Au nom de la lune", released in 1997, featured a mix of tracks recorded in English, French and even two songs in Indonesian. But it was the phenomenal success of Anggun's single "La neige au sahara" (which rocketed to the top of the European charts and became one of the hits of Summer 97 in France) that would really establish the Indonesian star on the French music scene. Following the chart success of "La neige au sahara", Anggun's album would really take off - indeed, "Au nom de la lune" would soon go on to sell more than 150,000 copies in France and Belgium.
The album "Au nom de la lune" not only rocketed Anggun to fame in France, it would also prove to be a major hit in the singer's homeland. Released under the title "Anggun", the album has gone on to sell well over 100,000 copies in Indonesia. The young diva's new repertoire of soft, romantic ballads certainly looks set to prove as popular with her Indonesian fans as her previous rock hits!
At the end of 2000 Anggun received an invitation from the Vatican, asking her to appear at a Christmas concert alongside a host of international stars including Bryan Adams. Anggun went on to kick off an extensive Asian tour in the spring of 2001, bringing the house down with her final concert at the Kallang Theatre in Singapore on April 30th.
Anggun was also invited to work with a number of other leading artists. She guested on DJ Cam’s "Soulshine" (2001), the Italian singer Piero Pelu’s "Amore immaginato" and Serge Lama’s album "Plurielles" (a compilation of duets). In 2001, Anggun branched out into the film world, appearing on the soundtrack to "Anja & Viktor." The following year she pursued this new direction, singing on the soundtrack to "Open Hearts." (Both Scandinavian movies were produced by Dogma Films).
In 2004, Anggun won public recognition for her work when the French Culture Minister Jean-Jacques Aillagon made her a "Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres." Meanwhile, Anggun maintained her commitment to humanitarian causes worldwide, becoming an official spokesperson for the UN’s micro-credit programme (designed to help eradicate debt in the Third World).
Anggun soon went back into the studio and in February 2005 returned to the music news with the single "Être une femme", released as a foretaste of her new album, "Luminescence". This album featured contributions from a host of well-known names including Tété, Lionel Florence and Jean Fauque.

Dalam perbincangan sehari-hari sering kita dengar ucapan :
"Wah enak ya sekarang Si Anu sudah jadi Direktur"
" Wah hebat si Badu sekarang sudah PhD"
"Wah kalo si Anu enak soalnya pegang jabatan basah"
atau ungkapan keberhasilan lainnya.
Catatan saya adalah setiap keberhasilan pasti melalui suatu proses panjang... suatu usaha yg tidak henti dari ybs... tidak ada keberhasilan yg datang secara tiba-tiba..... jer basuki mawa bea.

- Aktifkan WEP, kalo routernya support WPA lebih baik pilih WPA utk mode encryptionnya.
- Jangan gunakan TCP/IP utk file dan printer sharing.
- Non aktifkan administrasi router via wireless
- Gunakan MAC Address sebagai mekanisme utk authentikasi (tidak semua router memiliki feature ini).
- Jangan mengaktifkan feature Broadcast SSID.
- Rubah default SSID dg nama yg tidak merefleksikan nama kita, alamat kalo bisa bikin yg susah ditebak alias random.
- Jangan lupa utk segera merubah default password utk administrator.
- Lebih baik pake fixed IP Address ketimbang kita mengaktifkan DCHP.
- Ada yg mau nambahin.... silahkan di komentar

Pistol yg dipergunakan adalah CZ 999 standar militer buatan Zastava Arms - Serbia & Montenegro.
Saat pertandingan tiba, nervous yg kita rasakan Gue dapet nilai 174 pada posisi ke-10 perorangan, Eni dapat nilai 165 pada posisi ke-19 dan pak Athan dg nilai 141 pada posisi ke-31. He..he... pak Athan bisa anjlok krn ybs merupakan penentu kemenangan bagi team sehingga nervousnya lebih besar dan ini dialami oleh petembak terakhir tiap team. Favorit juara dari Embassy German dan Swiss nervous berat sehingga drop nilainya. Akhirnya kita dapet total angka 480 sbg juara umum dengan selisih hanya 2 angka dg juara kedua (Embassy Hungary) dan juara ketiga ditempati Embassy German (juara tahun lalu).... surprise kita baru ikut pertama kali langsung dapet juara umum ditambah Eni menjadi juara pertama perorangan utk wanita mengalahkan Asisten Athan Bulgaria....
Yang tidak mungkin akhirnya menjadi mungkin dengan usaha dan latihan... jer basuki mawa bea ...
